    Some charters set to lose 5 percent of mill levy funding
    Dear Editor:
    I always appreciated the fact that Jeffco shared 100 percent of mill levy funding to support students in charter schools in Jeffco as it should be because charter students are public school students, they live in Jeffco and their parents pay taxes in Jeffco.  At the May 3 board meeting, the school board discussed and voted to only sharing 95 percent of mill levy dollars with all charter schools.  My issues with this:

They expect that in addition to their paycheck, they have a right to expect good treatment in the forms of recognition for good work, a reasonable work schedule and respect from managers and others. Many will ask about the values of the organization as well as its goals.

  • ‘Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain’

    Last week we took a look at the circus as an appropriate analogy for the manipulation by the national media ringmasters of four rings of infotainment. Interestingly enough, there is also perhaps another similarity that merits inspection.

    Vote on May 8
    Editor:
    It’s time to vote! You may say, “Not again,” or “Not already!”
    But this is different. This is about the future of Evergreen, our hometown. Tuesday, May 8, is the election for the Evergreen Park & Recreation District Board of Directors. This election has historically had low voter turnout, with less than 10 percent of the possible voters coming to the polls.
